The 49ers put a lot of players on the Pro Bowl team. But there may not be many gold helmets in Honolulu.
With guard Mike Iupati suffering a broken leg on Sunday at Seattle, he’s out. And rookie Kyle Long is in.
A first-round pick in 2013, Long started all 16 games for the Bears. He’s the first Chicago offensive lineman to make it since the team’s Super Bowl season of 2006
.Long will join four teammates in Hawii: running back Matt Forté, receiver Alshon Jeffrey, cornerback Tim Jennings, and receiver Brandon Marshall.
